LAUREN FRANK

Hi, I’m Lauren. I’m a graphic designer and a recent graduate from University of California, Los Angeles where I studied Art with a minor in Art History. I have previously worked as an intern for The Jewish Museum in New York, VICE Media, and NBCUniversal and I am currently available for new opportunities.

My interests within design include branding, typography, editorial, and book design, as well as the intersections between art and design.

Outside of design, I am currently fascinated by the relationship between witchcraft and feminism, Hito Steyerl’s Duty Free Art, the Northern Renaissance, and the fact that there are people who refuse to wear a mask in the middle of a pandemic.

OUT WEST COOKBOOK


This book was designed with the user in mind most of all, focusing on being straightforward and understandable, while also evoking the excitement of cooking. The use of bright photography and color reflects the colorful landscape and cuisine of the West Coast. Each chapter is assigned its own color, so the reader may easily find a chapter by looking at the fore-edge of the book. Photography by Nikole Herriot and Michael Graydon.


BOOK DESIGN



LUMIERE SKINCARE


A skincare brand with the mission of creating clean and ethical products. The branding is based on nature, with a color palette derived from natural elements and abstract geometric forms inspired by chemical bonds, as the most important element of great skincare is great chemistry.


IDENTITY DESIGN



SUN AND MOON MAGAZINE


As a conceptual travel magazine, Sun & Moon was designed with the focus of being playful, yet understated. Each article layout was designed with the destination in mind, using colors that complement the landscape being explored. The magazine aims to show information in a straightforward way, while also allowing the reader’s eye to travel through various elements.

EDITORIAL DESIGN




THE JEWISH MUSEUM


While working as an intern at The Jewish Museum, I designed this drink menu for a happy hour event meant to attract a younger audience to the museum’s exhibition on Leonard Cohen. This menu was designed with the exhibition’s established identity in mind while using a bright yellow to stand out to visitors at the event.
